New Delhi: While Delhiites coughed, choked and caught their breath this weekend, politicians aired their views.
Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Harsh Vardhan insisted on the importance of carrots!
Eating carrots helps the body get Vitamin A, potassium, & antioxidants which protect against night blindness common in India. Carrots also help against other pollution-related harm to health.#EatRightIndia @PMOIndia @MoHFW_INDIA @fssaiindia pic.twitter.com/VPjVfiMpR8

BJP leader Vijay Goel’s stunt to break the `odd-even’ car rules in Delhi got him the attention he obviously craved — at least from the opposition.
Vijay Goel MP-A LawMaker!
Is deliberately driving an odd number car on an even numbered day!
As a LawMaker-How can he deliberately break the law?
I’ve been most vocal critic of Kejriwal-
But,I will never ‘contribute to air pollution’ as a way of protest!
Grow up Vijay Goel!

It takes a degree of insensitivity to boast of clear blue skies at a time like this, Mr. Kant.
Away from the hustle, bustle of Delhi in God’s Own Country where I have lived, worked and served the people of the State. This is where I will settle down in life. #Kerala #pollutionkills pic.twitter.com/TuJDptEDJo

We’ll have to wait an entire year before we know if US Senator Bernie Sanders is right.
One year from today, we're going to defeat Donald Trump.

Prime Minister Modi just said in Thailand that it was a great time to do business in India — guess he hadn’t read this by Australian journalist Siobhan Heanue.
Horrible experience at @DelhiAirport right now. Domestic passengers from an @airindiain flight have landed at the int’l airport & are being forced to line up for over an hour to show their ID or visas at immigration. Crowd is fighting. Doing business in India is just..too..hard.
